Civilian Evacuation Of Aleppo Still On Hold

Thousands of citizens in Aleppo are understood to be awaiting evacuation from the Syrian city.

It’s after an operation to take anti-government supporters out of the area was suspended yesterday amid renewed fighting.

It’d been hoped that would resume today – however Bashar al Asad’s forces have not yet allowed that to take place.

Over 310,000 people have died in the almost six year long civil war.

Charities are calling for a negotiated ceasefire and the establishment of safe evacuation corridors for citizens and humanitarian aid.
